Kemba's Mom Would Nix the Knicks ... Sorta

Barring a trade of some sort, it's unlikely Kemba Walker will still be around by the time the New York Knicks are ready to make their first selection of the 2011 NBA draft.

And that's just fine with Kemba's mom, Andrea Walker.

"I have nothing against the Knicks," she said, "but just being from New York, I think that would be too much responsibility on him. Just give him a chance to grow a little, see what he's about, what the NBA's about. Just don't throw him into the lion's den. If it is the Knicks, hey, so be it. It's closer to home, I wouldn't have to get up and move. But, it is what it is."

And wherever Kemba ends up, mom will be with him.

"If it's to Alaska, I'll be there," she said.
